Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has signed a new long-term contract with the Serie A club.
The Italy midfielder’s future had been the subject of speculation, with his previous deal due to expire at the end of this season and reportedly including a €30million release clause.
Liverpool and Tottenham were among the clubs to be linked with the 25-year-old, who has scored six goals and provided two assists in nine appearances this season.
The Giallorossi on Saturday announced that Pellegrini has agreed a new deal to keep him in the Eternal City until June 30, 2026.
“It’s impossible for me to explain this feeling, it’s what I’ve always wanted – to cement this bond between myself and my team and my city,” Pellegrini said. “You couldn’t imagine a greater feeling than this.
“I feel truly honoured that the ownership, Tiago [Pinto, the general manager] and the coach [Jose Mourinho] have always considered me so important; I will try to repay that faith every day on the pitch by giving 110 per cent and doing everything I can to keep improving.”
